Good morning Chiefs fans. Another day of Kansas City Chiefs news. How about those AFC QBs, right? Enjoy.
The Chiefs were so desperate for a capable wide receiver before their recent playoff game that they signed an out-of-work, 32-year-old veteran in Kevin Curtis to be a regular that day against Baltimore.
Curtis caught only one pass and couldn't prevent a lopsided loss to the Ravens in what might be his only game for the Chiefs. But the move revealed their thinking as to what is one of their biggest areas of need as they prepare for 2011.
Fueled by six takeaways, the NFC Pro Bowl squad cruised to an easy 55-41 victory over the AFC All-Stars in the 41st NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday in Honolulu, Hawaii. Despite the lopsided loss, Kansas City's 2010 Pro Bowlers accounted for plenty of offense and were involved in over half of the AFC's scoring.

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel didn't play on the winning team, but he did play a key role in what was probably the strangest play in Pro Bowl history.
Cassel hit Chiefs teammate Dwayne Bowe with a 21-yard pass in the closing seconds. Bowe lateraled the ball to Jacksonville's Montell Owens, who ran 6 yards before he lateraled the ball to Cleveland center Alex Mack, who rumbled 40 yards for the touchdown.
Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes said Sunday that young athletes should understand they can still accomplish great things, even after their careers come to a disappointing end.
Speaking in Springfield on Sunday just before induction into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, the one-time Super Bowl winner said he is a case in point: A neck injury ended his career in 2007, but his nonprofit foundation provides guidance for youths in Kansas City and San Antonio.
